My Students

I have 30 wonderful and bright students. I work in a neighborhood school in Chicago. I teach ESL and special education students language arts, math, science, social studies, health, and a zillion life lessons a day. It is an extremely diverse area, and the students in our school are from various backgrounds, making our class a melting pot of ethnicities. There are six different languages spoken in my classroom, and it represents a wide variety of individuals with different social and economic backgrounds.

The school where I work is great.

The principal/staff all work together to benefit student learning. I have been working at this school for sixteen years. Unfortunately, the school lacks funds to purchase necessary supplies that are greatly needed. The school cannot provide the funds needed to purchase materials since we face tough budget cuts this year. As an educator, I continually try to find what will be the best for my students. This at times is very difficult, but can be accomplished. My school would be able to purchase materials for students, but unfortunately their are no funds available at this time.

My Project

The Chromebooks will be used for all subjects but especially to research and to complete activities that will help with Common Core Standards. The Chromebooks would be used at all times by the students. My English Language Learning and Special Education students are very visual. I believe that having the ability to see the activities on the Chromebooks will be so rewarding and will help students make connections with their assignments. On a few occasions in the library my students have used Chromebooks to research materials for assignments. I have seen incredible work from these second graders. Therefore, I believe that having this type of equipment in the classroom will definitely benefit the learning of my students. Also, there are so many activities that the students can complete on Chromebooks that will increase their knowledge with Common Core Standards. The students would be taking turns using the Chromebooks on a daily basis and completing assignments that can increase their knowledge and comprehension.The Chromebooks would be such a valuable tool that would keep their excitement for learning throughout the year. It is also a good starting point in becoming technologically proficient, since most of my students come from low-income families with limited resources. Students need this type of equipment to succeed in their education.
